21st. Celebrations, cake, jiving - and a card

Wow! What a fantastic time we had at my eldset's 21st party (I finally got to bed at 3.30am!). We were so lucky that family and friends (some of whom we hadn't seen for many years due to house moves) joined us for the evening, some of them travelled long distances and booked into local accommodaion for the party. My daughter was upset that several friends decided not to come on the night, and went to another party instead, but the people who matter were there, and I think she learnt a few things about some of her so called "friends", it's a hard lesson to learn though.
One of my work colleagues made the cake, she has met my daughter a few times, & I told her that my daughter likes red, her Ka, her bed(!) & has lots of cushions on her bed. Her hair was blond - until she dyed it the other week. It took me a few minutes to realise how busty (like my daughter) my friend had made the figure lol.
My daughter has recently taken up mojive, & really enjoys it, here she is dancing the night away with one of her friends that she dances with, they had us captivated with their dancing. My sister gave her some new dance shoes on the night, which she was thrilled with, put them on straight away and started dancing :-) How fortunate too that she chose to wear her red dress on the night too.
Finally, here is the card I made for my youngest to give to her sister for her birthday. I found this beautiful black diamante ribbon a short while ago. It was quite big, so the only way to get it to fit onto the card was to use it from corner to corner of the card. I used a square of black card & applied small gems to it to make the 21, then glazed it with Anita's 3D glue to ensure the gems stayed in place. Tatty Ted stamp coloured with Promarkers, matted onto black card, gems applied to corners. Papermania monochrome paper, flowers & brads to secure flowers. 
Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave.
